Zogby Poll: Obama Approval At 42%

By Wyatt Earp | September 1, 2009

Obama FailWow. At this point, the president’s popularity lies somewhere between George W. Bush and Carrot Top. And unlike “The Top,” Barack Obama doesn’t have any funny props to pull out during press conferences.

Although that would be pretty cool. He could answer Helen Thomas’ questions while wearing a gigantic bow tie and smoking an exploding cigar.

Maybe it’s time to rethink ObamaCare, as well as the president’s other debt-swelling programs, because in the eyes of many politicos, a 42% approval is an epic FAIL.

Allahpundit breaks it all down:

It’s not quite as bad as it looks, but it’s plenty bad. Since last month, he’s down 13 points among Democrats, nine points among liberals, and 18 points among voters 18 to 29.

No public option, no peace?

“Pollster John Zogby: President Obama is now firmly between a rock and a hard place. Democrats want a strong healthcare reform bill with a public option. Republicans and more conservative Democrats do not agree. If Obama fails to get a bill that his base supporters want, the entire Democratic Party risks alienating them; especially 18-29-year-old First Globals, who could very quickly become disenchanted with politics. Obama needs to enter the fray in a very public way, which may mean knocking heads with both wings of his own party.”

He’s actually up slightly among likely voters in the last 10 days — coincidentally, while he’s been on vacation and off the television screen — but it’s the monthly trend that’s an eye-popper.

It would seem that the honeymoon is over, even for the most ardent Obama supporters. If he doesn’t change the course of his policies soon, he can expect a moving van at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in early 2013.

    I could not be happier. Lets hope it continues to plunge robbing them of more political capital before Holder begins his envisceration of the CIA while obambi plays like he didn’t want to be part of that, after giving Holder the nod. Pond scum in a suit still reeks of the swamps.
    It will still be awhile before we can unwrap the duct tape from our heads but we are approaching that day. Again how do you get those glue lines off that the tape leaves?

    Nothing gives me greater joy than watching BHO’s poll numbers drop faster than Helen Thomas’ breasts!

    I find this comparison absolutely great. Have you seen Carrot Top lately?

    Obama’s Approval Poll was at -11. There seems to be a crash and burn coming soon.

    I for one will celebrate it.

    i dunno I think Carrot Top would have higher approval numbers than Obama.

    Proof – Thank you! I’ll be here all week. Try the veal!

    Jon – Try nail polish remover.

    MeToo – A disturbing visual image, but your point is well taken.

    Admiral – If these trends continue, imagine what his number will look like in 2011.

    Smite – Well, he has better abs . . .

    Tom – Thank you, Kent Brockman!
